The 2nd Joint meeting of the ISFP and PA Workshop

The 2nd Joint meeting of the ISFP and PA Workshop

The congress will take place in the beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh, UK. The first joint meeting of these societies was held in 2016 Shizouka, Japan and was an incredible success. We hope to emulate this accomplishment in Edinburgh where we strive to host an exciting and stimulating conference with a mixture of invited state of the art speakers and presentations from the top selected abstracts.

We hope you will join us in Edinburgh to experience some Scottish hospitality.

  • Activation and regulation of fibrinolysis in the vasculature

  • Structure/function of plasminogen, plasminogen activators, receptors, and inhibitors
